Morning Glories have always been my favorite flower. This morning there were 8 of them on my gate. I took many pictures. Here are the best ones. This is an old variety called (I think) Grandpa Ott's Morning Glory. It is a yummy purpley blue.
I grew them from seed I saved from last year. I put them out late in May and two days later we had a fairly hard freeze. Only a few of the little plants lived through it even though I went out and covered them up. One, out in the garden on the east fence, is blooming and these by the gate.
I will have seeds to save again for next year. By the way speaking of saving seeds. I am getting lots of little poppy seed sized seeds from these little pink flowers. Jim got them out of a mix. Does anyone have any idea what they are?
You can see a little bit of dried up seed pods on the right side of the picture. Look for the little brown tubes just about in the middle of the right side. They are about 12 inches high.
I would show you a picture I took of my hard small green tomatoes but I am embarassed after seeing the Fatty Tomato on Fatty Kitty's website yesterday.
That was too much tomato and I am jealous (small hard green jealousy) and hungry for a home grown tomato. How are Jon's potatoes doing?
